Our present is the best guarantee for the future

EDI of the future is a thing of the past


Guilds or corporations were economic associations that first appeared in Europe in the 12th century. In these organizations, artisans from the same trade came together to share their efforts, wisdom and, ultimately, to improve collectively. For centuries, this system ensured jobs and economic welfare for its members, but unfortunately, its overly rigid hierarchical structure meant that it was unable to adapt to the technological and Industrial Revolution and eventually faded into obscurity.

Nowadays, the situation has changed radically. The technology is in place and there is now a committed mentality in businesses of any size, adapting to change and improving management systems to further their own organization or even benefit the sector as a whole. It comes as no surprise that a “guild” such as the pharmaceutical sector, with a great tradition behind, should join forces to optimize business and logistical communications, taking advantage of the potential and versatility of electronic data interchange technology.

We're talking about Business@Mail Pharma, the new application for the sector developed by EDICOM in close collaboration with some of the main pharmaceutical laboratories such as Bayer, Abbot, Boehringer, Hartmann, Pierre Fabre, IFC, Logista, Disalfarm or Biogalénica.

Working with it is simple, as it was conceived for pharmacies. Invoices, dispatch advices or invoice lists, among others, are published in a private portal where each user receives the documents from all their suppliers. An e-mail alert is sent automatically, reporting the documents pending checking and treatment. In addition, all electronic transactions received remain stored under special security conditions throughout the mandatory period set forth in the legislation (five years in the case of e-invoices).

Pharmacies unify their trade relations in a unique environment and cut the high costs of traditional management on paper. Their suppliers can automate communications with their customers. It seems clear that EDI makes the union, and the union brings strength and competitive advantage to an entire sector.

Once again, we see how a glance at the past can inspire us to understand the possibilities offered by the future, even in such a cutting-edge environment as B2B technology.
